Family Fun, a Block Party, and 2 Nights of Jazz

Everyone seems to have gone into August doldrums, including Blogger, which isn't letting me post photos with my Diary this morning. I'll post them later if it lets me.  In Norristown, the only energy is on the East End, at 216 Cherry Street, and at the Library. No one else seems to be doing anything for Fourth Friday or much of the rest of the weekend. But here are a few things happening around town if you're not stuck in the doldrums, too.

Today (Friday) from 11 am to noon at the Courthouse, you're invited to the Kick Off Event for the Philadelphia Museum Of Art Inside Out Program, followed by a walking tour of 5 of the exhibits.  More info at this link.

Tonight, 6-9 pm at Scag Cottman Park, Family Fun Friday, hosted by Buck Jones in association with Main St. Water Ice for all kids ages 6-13. Movies, food, games and entertainment. More info call 267-774-1694.

Tonight is also Fourth Friday, though the only event I could find for it is at Jazz on Cherry Street (216 Cherry). They're hosting Cedric Napoleon and Friends from 7-10 pm. Tickets $15, available at this link
